Open Thread

So, AOC has been running around claiming the border patrol detention facilities are Buchenwald II…making absurd claims of horrific treatment of the illegals. I’m not quite sure what the plan is. As you would expect, rank and file lefties are taking AOC’s claims as gospel, but how does that really help the left? No one outside the left – and, I suspect, some Never Trump Fredo-cons – are lending any credence to the stories but even if they were true, the people suffering the abuse only have to agree to go back home for it to end. I can only assume the left thinks that if they really push the “Trump is a Nazi” meme, it’ll eventually take hold and a few million white, middle class voters in the Rust Belt will suddenly decide that open borders and health care for illegals is the way to go.

Nike pulled shows decorated with the Betsy Ross flag from production because Kaepernick said the flag was a symbol of slavery. Kaepernick is an anti-American jerk – and if we’re such a lousy country, why does he stay?

Austin, the one place in Texas where liberals are allowed to flourish, has legalized camping on the city streets. The natural result: homeless people are camping on on the city streets. The left wants to make America a Third World dumpster.

Independent journalist Andy Ngo was given a beating by Antifa thugs in Portland – with, from what I can tell, a wink and a nod from Portland’s police department. My view: the feds have to step in. The Constitution empowers the federal government to ensure a Republican form of government: and with the government of Portland allowing political violence, there is no Republican form of government there. Shut the city government down, arrest everyone, and force the people of the city to start all over again.

In an entirely unsurprising bit of news, it is revealed that migrants are buying children to use when they cross the border. You already knew this – because with kids as a “get into America free” ticket, that is precisely what people wanting to cross will obtain.

    This one poor man they cut him all to pieces with sharp metal objects

    I just don’t what’s becomes of this world that no one cares to put a stop to these ANTIFA demons.

    Our Founding Fathers gave us the greatest freedom of all, the second amendment, yet it goes largely un-utilized. All while communist thugs make our streets non-free and very unsafe. We need to all of America’s streets free and safe again.

    I think it is obvious that Antifa is an interstate, if not international, criminal organization operating across state lines, and it is time for the DOJ to step in, identify it as such, and send federal agents in to shut it down and arrest those who are engaging in violence.

    Let the Left howl. They will howl anyway, so just let them howl and ignore them. We can’t have the ENTIRE nation controlled by rabid bullies. (The very idea that Nike has let some loser freak dictate company policy, and has let itself be intimidated by him and his kind, is disgusting.)

    I have had it up to here with all this whining about slavery. It was in the past. Get past it and get over it. And if you are going to make slavery and objections to it the focal point of your life, at least have the intellectual honesty to address all slavery, wherever it has existed and where it exists now. Ever notice how little attention these hypocrites pay to real slavery as it exists today? Every single civilization in history has had slavery, but the only demographic which simply cannot or will not move past that history is the American black culture, whimpering virtue signalers and political whores using it to gain political advantage.

    i can’t and won’t defend slavery. It is an affront to human dignity. But some things are worse. The slavery of the Left in places like the USSR and China, where slaves were literally worked to death, was far worse than the relatively benign slavery of the early United States. The treatment of prisoners of war by the Japanese was at least as bad as much of the treatment meted out by Nazis in their camps, yet the people of nations who had military imprisoned and tortured in those camps don’t obsess about what happened 65 years ago.

    I am disgusted by people who trivialize human rights abuses like slavery by turning them into campaign slogans, or ways to promote themselves. And I am even more disgusted by the hypocrisy of these pious self-congratulatory virtue signalers, as they carry on about the portrayal of a historical flag while ardently, stridently, supporting the idea that one person (a pregnant female) can own the body of another person, even to the point of killing it, or supporting the selling of children to be used as pawns in a corrupt political scheme. I would have marginally less contempt for them if they were at least consistent, and against all ownership of people by other people. But they prefer to carry on about what they consider symbolic ownership of people by claiming that owning a business employing people is somehow comparable to owning those people, or obsessing about history of two centuries past.

    The Democrats and the Media are actively engaging in more disinformation re: the border …. in other words, they are actively LYING to the American people. This morning, MSNBC is showing stick photos of detention centers back from 2014 and not mentioning that these were the conditions under the Obama admin. Furthermore, following AOC’s hysterics, an Hispanic Pastor, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez went to take a look:

    I just wanted to see what was actually happening in order to better enable our efforts to find a fair and a just solution to our broken immigration system,” Rodriguez, who has advised President Trump and both Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush on immigration reform, noted. “To my surprise, I saw something drastically different from the stories I’ve been hearing in our national discourse. Even as a veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., I was shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border.”

    “We found no soiled diapers, no deplorable conditions and no lack of basic necessities,” Rodriguez remarked, adding he specifically asked border agents if they staged the facility in response to the negative press. “They unequivocally denied it — we were witnessing the identical conditions the attorneys saw when they toured the facility days earlier.”

    In fact, some told him the sources from whom the negative coverage originated “never toured the areas of the facility that we toured” and speculated they might have had political motivations.

    After months of denying the chaos and calling it a “manufactured crisis”, Democrats and the Media are now lying about the chaos for political advantage, and all along, they alone have the ability to change the laws and end the chaos.

      Oh no; say it isn’t so! I’m shocked.

      You have to wonder if the Democrats sudden Radical Left turn is because they really believe that their unhinged behavior and rhetoric actually resonates with over half the country, or if they’re just so desperate that they’re willing to try anything to unseat Trump. It almost has to be the latter because many of the policies they’re advocating are only supported by 5-10% of the population.

    BTW, this explains AOC’s comments about drinking out of the toilet. Probably a Spanish/English translation problem coupled with her wanting it to be so.

    Frederica Wilson is what happens when the uneducated vote.

    WILSON: They’re at 17, waiting on their 18th birthday, I.C.E. comes to that facility, shackles their hands, shackles their feet, and take them to a private prison just like the private facility that they’re in. So they’re profiting from these children. So it’s profit and greed. And instead of them processing them out of these centers, out of that center, they’re constantly bringing girls and children into this center. I do not trust them with adolescent girls. I do not trust them with girls going through puberty. I do not trust them. And those were the girls that I didn’t see. The 13, 14, and 15-year-olds who are changing from women to …

    And she goes on …

    “Those people who are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace, and there is no need for anyone to think that is unacceptable [sic],” she said in comments captured by The Washington Examiner. Wilson added, “We’re gonna shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted.”

    So you got that? If you make fun of her, she thinks you should be prosecuted. Frederica is a good example of when get away from Darwinism and subsidize stupidity.

      Perhaps this would be a good time to step up the verbal “attacks” on her. Maybe force her to rethink being a politician, or opening her big mouth advocating prosecuting those who legally exercise the first amendment rights – real rights, not some fictitious rights made up by the left. Maybe getting a small taste of what many on the right deal with every day might change her attitude. I find it a little amazing that someone with such thin skin would so foolishly broadcast it publicly. Anyone wonder why Trump is so successful at verbally tormenting the left? Partly because it’s so easy, partly to keep them off balance, partly to show the public what two-faced idiots they are, and partly because they deemed it fair game.

      She offends every cowboy hat wearing person in the universe by perching too-small hats on what AOC would call the tippy-top of her head where they teeter and look absolutely ridiculous—–and that is before she opens her mouth.

    What a great way to celebrate Independence Day — all three major stock market indices closed at new record highs.

      It’s equally humorous that many on the Left, on the heels of tens of trillions of dollars in new government spending proposals, are concerned about the cost of the Independence Day celebration.

      Would you prefer that the Independence Day celebration include burning cars, smashing windows and assaulting Conservatives as was done at Trump’s inauguration?

    • Amazona July 4, 2019 / 12:36 pm

      Tell you what, Simon—when we start to forget how brainless you are, we’ll say so and you can come back and remind us. Till then, you are just being redundant.

      Watch this space.

      • Cluster July 5, 2019 / 8:34 am

        Did you two look at the site Simon linked to? That’s some tin foil hat sh*t right there. Ironically, many on that site are saying that Russia is trying to nuke us …. and here I thought Trump was a Russian agent.
